Yearly Authors Challenge Status

in #hivebuzz10 months ago (edited)

Since its creation, the HiveBuzz project has aimed to support users' engagement on the Hive platform. End of last year, we announced a new badge for regular publishers: the Yearly Author Badge.

This badge was requested by many of you and it seems that its existence has motivated more than one to tackle the difficult task of publishing at least one post every day.

It has now been six months since this challenge, which lasts a whole year, was launched and here we are now in the middle of the journey. It's time to take a quick look at the state of play and see how many authors are still in the running.

A squad of committed publishers.

For information, last year, only 51 authors would have deserved this badge. At the time of writing, they are 196 still in the running for the trophy this year.

Congratulations to the following authors for their daily commitment:

Congrats to them for the effort deployed until now. We wish you good luck because the road is still long. You need to keep up the pace for the next 6 months.

A quick reminder of the rules

To find out if you are entitled to receive a Yearly Author badge and validate when you published your post, Hivebuzz uses the time of the blockchain which is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)!

If you post at the wrong time, i.e. taking into account your local time or way of considering weeks, you may miss both badges and will have to wait till the next Monday or month to be able to earn your coveted badge.

These particularities in the validation rules have led to many users contacting us to ask us why they have not received their badges.

Track your progress

To help authors know if they're still on track to earn their badges, they can check the progress indicators below their badges:

They will let you know how many days you published a post this week, month or year.

If the gauge is green, it indicates that you are on your way to earning the badge.
If the gauge is red, it means you missed one or more days of the week or month, or you still haven't posted today.

Good luck to all the challengers. How many of you will be able to hold it to the end?

Hang on!

aha this is good, good to see my name on the list I hope I will manage to make regular posts for the next 6 months as well.

!giphy wow


@fermentedphil I'm glad you are in the race with me. 😂 But when will loadshedding take its first victim!! Laughs I am doing everything in my power to keep both my laptop and dongle charged up!

Hey don't joke, I almost missed one or two due to damn loadshedding, hahaha. It is a real fear. You do not understand. I have worked so hard, like all of the others, and something as inconsequential as loadshedding cannot ruin either my or your streak!

Anyways, jokes aside, well-done buddy! It is not an easy task we set up for ourselves. And let us hope that loadshedding does not hamper our abilities to produce quality content.

Hey! I'm also participating for the badge and you didn't mention me.🥰🥰🥰

Sorry about that. Copy/paste error.
It's been fixed now

Wow! this has been very exciting! we are already half way there. 6 months ago it seemed really crazy, today I think it's possible. Thanks for creating the badge and for always motivating content creators with everything Hivebuzz does.

Greetings and good vibes @arcange

Lol, I didn't know I was in a competition, but it's nice to know that I made it to the finish line without knowing it :)
I think that I wrote at least three years ahead, I will buy popcorn, I will wait for new badges. Thank you!

Wow almost 200 users posting daily! That’s pretty incredible! I’ve barely managed a couple of monthly posting badges this year, and that’s been a struggle! I’ll need to have a nosey and see what content these buzzy bees are posting! Keep it up everyone! Good luck for the next half of the year!

We miss you on the list @slothlydoesit 😢

Hi there, I don't see my name on list which is disappointing to say the least as it has been a Target all year and I have posted every day....

Can you check if I should be on list? Thanks

We did the check. You missed two days in April: 2023-04-07 and 2023-04-10.
Sorry about that @ablaze 😢

You're joking me!! 6 months grafting 🙈🙈

Timezone must have caught me out as definitely posted every day this year in Ireland times 😒😒🫤😕🥴

Oh well..

I tried ..

Thank you so much for the reminder and the mention! Hard work pays off in many different ways. Thank you so much for the incentive. And congrats but also good luck to all of the others who are participating.

This is amazing. I didn't know there was a post about this. I will keep up and always post to qualify for the challenge. It's interesting though. Thank you for the mention.

I hope that one of this days, I will have that covered badge on my profile.😁
